N. B. — This is the second of a series 
of introductions to the leaders of we 
Lebanon Valley College Building and 
Endowment Campaign. 

In the last issue of LA VIE COL- 
LEGIENNE, you were introduced to 
the General Chairman of the Commit- 
tee. This week you are going to meet 
his Associate, Mr. Lloyd A. Satta- 

Mr. Sattazahn is well known in lo- 
cal banking circles. He is the Execu- 
tive Vice President of the Lebanon 
National Bank, Lebanon. His profes- 
sional experience, has made him a 
much sought after man in the United 
Brethren Church. 

In the capacity of Treasurer of the 
Salem United Brethren Church, Leba- 
non, he has demonstrated his useful- 
ness. The College has likewise bene- 
fited from his services in that Mr. 
Sattazahn is chairman of the Finane?

Monday, January 24, Is 
Date for Next Recital 

The next Lebanon Community Con- 
ceit on Monday, January 24, will fea- 
ture as its guest artist Helen Trau- 
oel, one of the great Sopranos of all 

Her triumph is that of an Ameri- 
can artist, born of native American 
parents in the city of St. Louis, and 
or an art nurtured and inspired en- 
tirely in America. Acclaimed by crit- 
ics and public alnve, Miss Traubel, as 
a practically unknown young soprano 
nad within two months taken h e r 
place as one of the transcendent ar- 
tists of song. A first Town Hail recital 
in October, a 'coast-to-coast broadcast 
on the Ford Hour the following Sun- 
day, an engagement with the New 
York Philharmonic a week later, and 
then her unforgettable Metropolitan 
Opera debut in December — all this in 
two months. 

In the New York press appeared 
words long unwritten in musical cir- 
cles. Comments such as these — "Elec- 
trifying power and intensity" and 
''epic grandeur and nobility." 

Miss Traubel has swept audiences 
to their feet in cheering acclaim in 
three historic trans-continental tours. 
The San Francisco News stated: "It 
is the extraordinary range, warmth 
and an amazing variety of color which 
makes the Traubel voice the greatest 
soprano of its day." 

As a prima donna of the Metropoli- 
tan Opera Association, and an out- 
standing concert singer, Helen Trau- 
bel has brought to music the glory 
of her personality and the splendor 
of her voice.

Debut Saturday 

Dutchmen Seek First Win 
In Game With Lehigh 

The Blue and White court squad 
will open its home season on Satur- 
day, January 15, at 8:30 P. M., when 
they entertain the Engineers of Le- 
high University on the Annville High 
School floor. 

"Mike" Intrieri's ali-civilian aggre- 
gation is after its first win of the sea- 
son, after having bowed to the top- 
notch Albright Lions at Reading last 
Saturday. Frankie Shupper, the 
squad s only veteran and winner in 
the College's poll to find the best male 
athlete, will be on hand to lead the 
Dutchmen into their second tussel of 
the season. It was this New Jersey 
flash who staged a one-man show at 

"Big Hank" Detweiler, Dick Hor- 
ner, and Charlie Wolfe, extra-mural 
stars, will also be in the Blue and 
White livery. After their debut last 
week, they should have been able to 
shake the first-game jitters. Glenn 
Hall, of whom the campus has heard 
little in intra-mural activities, will 
also be on deck. The entire squad, 
despite their loss to the Lions, made 
a fine showing in their first collegiate 

Since the athletic activities have 
been so drastically curtailed this year, 
the Coach and the squad are anxious 
to have the support of the entire stu- 
dent body in their home game. They

trie concert. Gosh, I'd like to hear it. 

Have you been to any of the H'bg 
concerts this year? How do they 
sound? Have they lost many mem- 
bers? How are the crowds? 

Could you get the "Trombone" edi- 
tors busy on a new address list? There 
are several fellows I would like to 
write to, (no cracks called for), but 
I'm sure there must be some changes 
of address by now. There won't be 
any time before your concert, I know. 
But afterwards, hmmmmm?? 

Good luck — I hope it's the best pro- 
gram the Symphony has ever played.

Ruth GrayMU, '44, 
Returns to Her Home 

On December 29, after a stay of five 
and a half weeks in the Harrisburs 
Hospital, Ruth Graybill returned to 
her home at Penbrook. 

Her condition is very satisfactory, 
but it is understood that she must re- 
main in bed for some time. Since she 
was to have been graduated in Janu- 
ary, 1944, the faculty decided to give her diploma, which Dr. Lynch pre- 
sented to her on Wednesday, Decem- 
ber 22. 

In a letter from Mrs. Graybill which 
Dr. Lynch received on Monday, s ii e 
says: "Will you please tell all who 
inquire about Ruth that she is look- 
ing forward to the time when she can 
visit the college and see everyone and 
thank them personally for the many 
expressions of best wishes, holiday 
greetings, letters, etc., which she has 
received while being ill. She has cer- 
tainly appreciated all of them. We 
hope that anyone who has an oppor- 
tunity to visit Ruth while she is con- 
valescing at home will feel free to do 
so. She enjoys having visitors. Ruth 
has truly experienced a remarkable 
recovery this far unexplainable in 
medical science, but we know thaitl 
God answers prayer and that miracles 
still happen."

Intrieri's Courtsters 
Fall to the Tune of 45-27 
On Albright Battlefield 

Coach Mike Intrieri's Flying Dutch- 
men were the victims of a high-step- 
ping Albright College quintet on the 
latter's court, Saturday night, Jan- 
uary 8, to the doleful tune of 45-27. 
This was the season's opener for the 

The Valley cause was valiantly lead 
by the lone veteran of the club, 
Frankie Shupper. Though the team 
displayed a game spirit, they were no 
match for the clawing Lions of Read- 
ing. This was the sixth straight win 
for the Albrightians, who have 
amazed pre - season prognosticators 
with their performances to date. In- 
cidentally, they are at the head of the 
undefeated court squads in Pennsyl- 

The Lions opened up early to post 
a 12-6 lead over the Blue and White 
in the initial stanza. Holding the up- 
per hand by a 9-5 margin in the sec- 
ond period, they hiked their advan- 
tage to 21-11 at halftime. Resuming 
the offensive in the third chukker, the 
Lions again doubled the score on the 
Dutchmen, posting a 16-8 advantage, 
to boost their lead to 37-19 at three- 
quarters and from there on the Lions 
subsided with reserves in action for 
the most part. As it was, the Dutch- 
men matched scores with their old- 
time rivals' in the final chapter at 8- 
all but Albright's commanding early 
lead was never threatened. 

Shupper put on a one-man scoring 
show for the fans by tossing a half- 
dozen field goals and converting a 
like number of charity chucks to pace 
the parade with 18 points. Detweiler 
scored the only other field goal cred- 
ited to the Dutchmen, but the Blue 
and White cashed in from the charity 
stripe by counting 13 points on penal- 

Big John Derko paced the Lions 
with 15 points". The summary:

■ Miss Travis Makes Debut 
Exchange Material As Conserv Faculty Soloist 

Fenn College, Cleveland, Ohio, re- 
cently opened the first College person- 
nel training laboratory in the nation. 
The experimental laboratory may lead 
to Fenn offering an A.B. degree in 
personnel training or to a new school 
devoted exclusively to this field. 

The purpose of the laboratory, as 
stated by Prof. Joseph S. Kopas, its 
founder is simply "to make more effi- 
cient use of the men and women in in- 

The laboratory looks like any col- 
lege professor's office except that scat- 
tered around on the tables are a few 
mysterious boxes and gadgets, which 
contain, or are dn themselves, really 
aptitude or panel tests. 

"Reason for the laboratory is that 
we not only have to train people to bt 
professional personnel workers, we 
must also develop the tools, equipment, 
and the textbooks for them to use," 
Prof. Kopas stated. 

After the war he hopes to set up a 
course leading to a regular college 
degree in personnel work. 

On Monday, January 3, Miss Eliza- 
beth Travis, Professor of Piano in 
the Conservatory, presented a recital, 
her first L. V. faculty appearance, in 
Engle Hall. A varied and interesting 
program displayed Miss Travis' ver- 
satility, fine musicianship, and re- 
markable technique. 

The program was as follows: Par- 
teta in B flat Major by Bach; Sonata, 
Op. 10, No. 3, by Beethoven; Varia- 
tions on the Name Ahegg by Schu- 
mann; Ballade in G minor by Chopin

The beginning of the new semester, 
Monday, January 2, saw the enroll- 
ment of Lebanon Valley College in- 
crease with the registration of twen-

Shenk Collection Discussed 
In December 15 Journal 


N, B. — This is No. 3 in the series in- 
troducing campaign heads. 

Dan Walter, who is heading the 
Alumni Campaign in Lebanon Valley 
College's Building and Endowment 
Campaign, graduated from L. V. C. 
in 1918. He was in his day one of the 
college's outstanding athletes. 

An insurance agent by profession, 
"Danny" has also served as Postmas- 
ter of the city of Lebanon since 1933. 
He is active in civic affairs, being, 
among other things, a member of both 
the Lebanon High School Athletic 
Council and the Lions Club. 
, He takes his position at the head of 
the Alumni Campaign, by virtue of 
the fact that he has been serving its 
Alumni President since 1937. The col- 
kge is grateful for the contributions 
°f time and effort which Danny has 
*o willingly given. 

The Library Journal, December 15, 
1943, carries an article of interest to 
Lebanon Valley College stuaents and 
Alumni. Under the heading, ''An Idea 
— And Some Luck." there appears an 
article concerning Lebanon Valley's 
new Shenk Collection. 

The article, originally a letter writ- 
ten by Miss Helen E. Myers, is re- 
printed in part below: 

"About three years ago Merle M. 
Hoover, one of our alumni who has 
assembled the Benjamin Collection for 
Columbia University, suggested that 
we ought to have a special collection 
in the Lebanon Valley College Li- 
brary. We had kept away from spe- 
cial collections, because we felt that 
we should first build up the main li- 
brary until it had become a sizable 
working collection. However, through 
the years, we had preserved all local 
material of various kinds that came 
into our hands. 

"It wasn't very difficult to decide 
what our special collection should be; 
it was to be a "regional library." We 
are geographically situated in what is 
usually thought of as Pennsylvania 
German land. Into this region have 
come a number of influences which 
have determined its culture, other 
than German; the English had settled 
in some places, the Welsh and t h o 
Scotch Irish in others." 

"As we were deciding just what we 
w anted to do, fate played into our 
hands. Dr. G. S. Derickson, an alum- 
nus, bought a medical practice in 
Womelsdorf, Berks County. The last 
heirs moving out left behind the fam- 
ily records. Dr. Derickson presented 
the daybooks and the account books 
of the Drs. John Tryon Livingood 
and Louis from 1817-1900. 

"We had assembled before that a 
number of books dealing with that 
area. This collection is named the 
Hiram Herr Shenk Collection, for a 
professor who had been associated 
with the college for many years. He 
was State Archivist for a while and 
knows anecdotes and Pennsylvania 
history well. 

"There are no limits to the possi- 
bility of this collection. So many di- 
versified influences make this region 
interesting that it is hard to define 
the limits of this collection. The first 
influence was religion; many sects 
came here, each seeking one thing, 
freedom of religion — Lutherans, Re- 
formed, Moravians, Evangelical, Men- 
nonites, Amish, Dunkers, Presbyter- 
ians, Seventh Day Baptists and many 
others. The second was agricultural; 
this section is a rich agricultural one, 
orchards, dairy farms rs well as gen- 
eral farming. The third, the Cornwall

The wedding was preceded by an 
organ recital and two solos. Mrs. Mur- 
ray Bowman, organist, played Sere- 
nade, Salute <T Amour, and Traumeri. 
The beautiful and traditional Because 
and The Sweetest Story Ever Told 
were the two vocal selections sung by 
Mrs. Richard Becker. 

The bride wore a lovely white satin 
gown styled with a sweetheart neck- 
line, puffed sleeves, a full train, and 
a finger tip veil. She carried a charm- 
ing bouquet of white roses and sweet 
peas. The groom was dressed in the 
latest fashion of the day, an army un- 

Attending the bride, was her class- 
mate, Miss Elizabeth Sheetz, who wore 
an attractive blue gown and carried a 
contrasting bouquet of red roses and 
sweet peas. In the role of best man 
was Brian Kintzer, also a student of 
Lebanon Valley and a member of the 
couple's class. 

Palms, ferns and cut flowers added 
to the festive atmosphere. Among the 
guests were many of the college stu- 
dent friends of the bride and groom. 

Following the nuptials a reception 
was held at the home of the bride, af- 
ter which the couple set off on a brief 
honeymoon for the remainder of the 
groom's furlough. 

Mrs. Schreiber is a Junior, and a 
Biology major. Pvt. Schreiber was 
formerly a member of her class, but 
left last February 22 for the Army. 
At present he is stationed at Alfred 
University, Alfred, New York, where 
he is studying basic engineering in 
the A.S.T.P. 

After her honeymoon, Mrs. Schrei- 
ber will resume her college work, and 
her husband, his full furlough ended, 
will return to his post in the Army.

About four years ago, the Wig and Buckle Club held monthly meetings 
in Engle Hall. Features of these meetings were the discussions on drama, 
stage settings, make-up, sound effects, etc. In addition, there were always 
at least two one-act plays on the program. These meetings were only a part 
of the yearly calendar of the Wig and Buckle Club. The C^ub always assisted 
other campus organizations in planning their annual stage productions, as 
well as staged its own three-act drama. 

The war has brought about a radical change in this program. No one in 
the college is to blame for the change. However, the campus has been unnec- 
; essarily robbed of some good stage productions, especially during recent se- 
mesters. The past semester rolled by with only one Wig and Buckle appear- 
ance — two one-act plays on Homecoming Day. The rest of the semester was 
wasted debating which play might be adopted as the best vehicle for one or 
two persons. Will we have to go through another playless semester, or will 
the Wig and Buckle be revived ? We are not interested in seeing only per- 
sonalities on the stage. We want a play which is not heavy, but relaxing. 
We want a good laugh. Hang the drama and character vehicles. 

•Blood Bank 

Last week the Red Cross Blood Bank celebrated its first anniversary in 
Lebanon and Annville. During the first year of its local existence, the Bank 
received 2,834 pints of blood. We are pioud to report that some of this was 
donated by students of Lebanon Valley College, how much, we do not know. 
As we look ahead to the second year of the Red Cross Blood Bank in the com- 
munity, let us all resolve to support it to the best of our ability. One pint of 
blood will go a long way in the saving of a life on the battlefield. Let each 
of us pledge ourselves to save a life during the next year. 

•William Allen White 

Democracy and the Democratic way of life lost one of its most ardent 
apostles with the passing of the late William Allen White, the Emporia 
journalist. He was not a colloquial. He was a citizen of the world. He saw 
and fought for the rights of men. But his concepts of democracy transcended 
the ideas of rights and equalities. Quoting Walter Lippmann: "His life is 
the proof that democracy is more than a method of government, and more 
than a bill of rights and more than the liberties and equalities of men. It is 
a fraternity which holds men together against anything that could divide 

William Allen White was not a fanatic. He was a shrewd politician 
equipped with the powers of the press. He accepted democracy as a way 
of life and applied his politics and journalism to its preservation. 

Exchange Material 

Drexel students participated in the 
Fourth War Loan Drive by purchas- 
ing $97.00 worth of war bonds and 
stamps. A Defense Stamp Dance, held 
the afternoon of the opening day, was 
well attended, the door prize being 
$3.00 worth of defense stamps, and 
the admission being the purchase of a 
war stamp. 

Muhlenberg College acted as host to 
Vaughn Monroe's Spotlight Band in 
the Rainhow Room at Crystal Park 
on January 27. "The Victory Parade 
of Spotlight Bands" is heard six 
nights a week from Army, Navy, Mar- 
ine, Coast Guard and Merchant Mar- 
ine Bases and from war production 

A recent experiment conducted by 
Kenneth M. Peterson of the Depart- 
ment of Education, Ohio State Uni- 
versity, indicates that many college 
students are capable of doing more 
work than is ordinarily required of 
them. Furthermore, Mr. Peterson 
found that the students "handled a 
load beyond the average with little 
damage to themselves as regards 
health, use of leisure time, or parti- 
cipation in extra-curricular activities. 
They were thrilled to find that they 
could do more than they had hereto- 
fore realized." — I. P. 

Civilian students in 674 approved 
colleges and universities this year 
totaled 460,849 as against last year's 
750,233. This loss of 38.6% would 
have been much greater if women stu- 
dents had not nocked to the institu- 
tions in unusual numbers this fall. 

In view of the demands of public 
schools, with an estimated shortage of 
25,000 teachers, the current enroll- 
ments in teachers colleges are alarm- 
ingly slow. 


Years before Americans knew the 
true meaning of morale, the Russian 
army was paying close attention to 
ways and means of producing that 
quality in its members. In 1928 there 
was formed in the Moscow Central 
Red Army Club an outstanding sing- 
ing group known as the Choir of the 
Red Army of the U.S.S.R. The pur- 
pose of this group was to follow the 
Red Army wherever it went, and keep 
at a high point the soldiers' morale. 
Outside of its official duties, the Choir 
became noted for its magnificent in- 
terpretations of folk and operatic mu- 
sic as well as martial songs. In 1936 
the Order of the Red Banner was con- 
ferred on this organization as a token 
of the appreciation felt by the gov- 
ernment for is most successful work. 

Columbia has recorded six songs by 
this brilliant singing group. Anyone 
hearing these records will admit that 
never was there a body of men who 
sang with greater spirit and fervor 
than those who compose the Choir of 
the Red Army. A. V. Alexandroff, di- 
rector of the Choir, has trained it to 
perfection. The shadings and inter- 
pretative quality is meticulous. All 
the tremendous reserve of fighting 
spirit and patriotism of these great 
soldiers is transferred to those who 
listen to their rich voices blending as 

Among the six songs in the album 
are the Song of the Plains, The White 
Whirlwind, Le Chant Du Depart, Song 
of the Village Mayor, The Boatmen of 
the Volga, and The Marseillaise. The 
latter is one of the most thrilling 
songs ever written. Coming from the 
fiery French Revolution, this song has 
inspired men beyond reasonable con- 
trol for decades. Now it is used to 
encourage the Red Army interchange- 
ably with the Intemationalle. When 
one hears these records it is evident 
that a nation that can sing like the 
Russians can never be defeated by one 
that slaughters men who once sang 
Ode To Joy.

Reported Killed, Is 

Very Much Alive 

Previously reported killed in action, 
Sgt. Frank Kuhn, '41, is as much alive 
as ever before, according to letters 
received by his sister and mother at 
their Camp Hill home. 

After several letters failed to reach 
their destination, the War Department 
announced that Sgt. Kuhn was "killed 
in action." This was last October. In 
the meantime members of the family 
appealed to the Red Cross to investi- 
gate the case. 

The investigation revealed that Sgt. 
Kuhn had been moved. The letters 
which had been sent to him did not 
follow him. Thus originated the re- 
port that he was killed. 

"Frankie," as he was known on the 
Lebanon Valley College Campus, was 
one of the fighting Dutchmen of the 
gridiron during his college days. He 
was also prominent on the diamond 
and the basketball court.

The activities of any one day would 
be ample to fill a letter of this type. 
The Christmas season was a very busy 
one, as it always is in the Navy. Mucn 
is done to carry out the idea of joy 
and happiness. Christmas trees, dec- 
orations, programs, worship services, 
parties, and many other festivities are 
in full swing. The regular routine 
work also gathers' momentum and so 
everyone is busy from morn until 
night. The day before Christmas is 
spent bringing all loose ends together. 
For me it was unusually busy because 
in addition to my already well laden 
schedule I had three weddings to take 
care of. At seven we rendered our S. 
S. Christmas pageant in the Chapel ; 
at eight the choir rendered a Christ- 
mas concert in the theatre; at 9:30 
Chaplain Miller and his family gave 
a buffet dinner to members of his de- 
partment; at midnight we attended 
the Catholic Mass. At eight Christmas 
day I had to be on duty; at nine I at- 
tended the Protestant communion ser- 
vice; at ten the Children's Christmas 
party for over 400 children, 100 of 
these came from the colored, Mexican 
and American groups from the city; 
Santa Claus came by plane and was 
rushed to the theatre in a Jeep and, 
after he had spoken to the children, 
he led them to the hugh tree on the 
lawn and gave every child a present, 
assisted by sailors and Waves. The 
city children were given their dinner 
in the enlisted men's mess where I 
could eat. I assumed the day's watch 
duty at noon and stayed at the office 
until 9:30 in the evening. I had to be 
back at the Station at 8:30 Sunday 
morning, and conducted a service at 
9:15 and Sunday School at 10. In the 
afternoon I called on 28 dependents of 
Naval personnel in the city hospital. 
Since Christmas we have been just as 
busy. At present I make two visits to 
the city hospital every week — Wed- 
nesday and Sunday afternoons. From 
two to three hours are required to see 
from 25 to 40 patients on each visit. 
Many of these patients are new moth-

As Many Court Encounters 

On Tuesday, January 25, the Red 
Cross Unit of Lebanon Valley College 
met to complete its plans of organiza- 
tion. At the meeting, the projects 
which will be started on the campus 
in the near future, were discussed, 
and definite plans were made concern- 
ing them. 

Besides the student aid in making 
Surgical Dressings, already in opera- 
tion, four night classes in Canteen, 
Nutrition, Home Nursing and First 
Aid will be offered. The following 
information concerning the time and 
place of the courses was released by 
the president of the organization, Liz- 
ette Fisher: — Canteen, Tuesday bt 
7:00 P. M. in Room 16 of the Admin- 
istration Building; Nutrition, Wed- 
nesday at 7:00 P. M. in the Annville 
High School; First Aid, Tuesday at 
7:00 P. M. in the Administration 
Building; Home Nursing, Wednesday 
at 7:30 P. M. in Room 5 of the Ad. 
Building. The latter class will con- 
duct weekly laboratory sessions in the 
College Infirmary. The teachers for 
the courses have not been announced 
to date, neither has the enrollment 
been completed. 

The organization functions under 
the direction of D. Clark Carmean 
and Miss Esther Henderson with a 
student committee of Lizette Fisher, 
Chairman, Geraldine Huss, Vice- 
Chairman, Betty June Butt, Secre- 
tary, and Marian Ulmer, Treasurer. 


Longer Leap Years 

Librarians will make mistakes and 
can be forgiven on occasion, but here's 
a story which is too good to ignore. 

The stamp was set for February 29. 
A book was being taken from the Li- 
brary. When Marjorie Frantz applied 
the stamp to the appropriate spot in 
the rear of the book, the date did not 
meet her fancy. She took her pencil 
and made it to read "February 30." 

Can it be that Leap Year is too 
short for our Librarians? 

Kania Kampaigns For 
Knitters' Klub 

Joseph Kania was deeply moved in 
Dr. Stine's speech class when Helen 
Sattazahn made an appeal for Red 
Cross knitters. 

Knitter Kania, '46, a New Jersey- 
ite, expressed a hope that the men on 
the campus would cooperate with Miss 
Sattazahn. In fact, he proposed the 
organization of a Men's Knitters' 

ting forth every effort at home to keep 
the war effort moving by working 
steadily every day and buying more 
bonds. During 1943 the men of the 
Navy alone bought over 300 million 
dollars worth of War Bonds. This 
year this amount will be many times 
larger. All of us working together 
without any waste anywhere will 
bring a speedier victory. I know that 
our prayers are united to this end. 

Our sincere prayer and earnest wish 
is that you all may have a very Hap- 
py and Victorious New Year. 

Very sincerely yours, 

Chaplain USNR.

fiying bullets from Gettysburg Col- 
lege, Lebanon Valley's all civilian 
team took it on the nose again in a 
59-38 contest staged on the Annville 
High court on January 29. 

A former Hazleton high school star 
was the chief dampener of the Flying 
Dutchmen's hopes as Vince Parnell 
came through in his usual brilliant 
style to cop 28 points and high scoring 
honors for tfye evening. The "Rahway 
Express," Frankie Shupper, was his 
usual self with a good 19 markers for 
the unlucky hosts. 

After a slow start which saw them 
led by a mere three points at the close 
of the first period, the visitors' turn- 
ed on the heat to rack up 21 points 
before the first half gun. This, plus 
the fact that Intrieri'g men were lim- 
ited to 6 and 8 points in the first two 
periods, was enough to give them a 
30 to 14 lead at half time. 

This was more than enough to break 
the back of Lebanon Valley, for al- 
though the victory-starved quintet 
from Annville was able to match their 
rivals in the ability to cut the cords 
in the second half, they were never 
quite able to overcome the large half 
time margin acquired by the Bullets. 

The Gettysburg team, incidentally, 
came to Annville seeking their fourth 
victory in five starts and came away 
with just that. The Flying Dutchmen 
have now dropped their third straight 
tilt and should be in a favorable posi- 
tion for a bounce to the win column. 

January 15 saw the Engineers from 
Lehigh University run rough-shod 
over a small but fightier Valley quin- 
tet, 51-38, on the Annville court. Majc- 
zan paced the winners with 28 points 
while Frankie Shupper tallied 22 for 
a lost cause.

For depth, power, and sheer vocal 
beauty Miss Traubel has no equal. 
Her program was well chosen and 
interesting, containing German Lieder 
and Wagner for which she is famous. 
The accompanist, Mr. Coennraad V.

The Rev. Mr. Ellsworth Snoddy was 
trying to find means of cutting down 
his college expenses, so he went to 
Carnegie Library in search of a vol- 
ume on the subject. 

He came across a book entitled, 
How to Get Through College On Noth-

him. It seemed as though his problem 
was solved, at least until Fate stepped 
into the picture. With success at his 
finger-tips, Mr. Snoddy lost the book. 
Now he will never know the secret of 
getting "through college on nothing a

semester has been raised the price of

"The German influence predominat- 
ed in the beginning. We are trying 
to show the early German influence in 
this region through the medium of 
the presses, how late it persisted, how 
early the English influence came into 
the schools and churches. 

"Just about four miles from Ann- 
ville at Sunnyside Mills in the eighties 
and nineties lived a farmer, miller, 
and schoolmaster, Henry S. Heilman. 
He was also especially interested in 
collecting books of the early German 
presses. In the fall of 1942, his heirs 
quietly said that the library was for 
sale; we were fortunate enough to 
acquire it. Purchased and presented 
to us by the President of our Board 
of Trustees, E. W. Funkhouser, we 
were able to align most of it with 
our main objective. 

"The German presses are well rep- 
resented. We have six imprints of the 
elder Saur, among them the Sam- 
Bible of 1743 and a book which is 
even rarer than that, the Marburger 
Gesangbuch of 1757. We have many 
titles of the younger Saur, including 
three copies of the second, 1763, edi- 
tion, of the Sour Bible, one imper- 
fect, and two copies of the third, 1776, 
edition. There are also two-thirds of 
the titles of the Ephrata Cloister, 
among them, two editions of Bracht's 
Martyretr Spiegel, 1748. One has a 
frontispiece showing immersion as the 
mode of baptizing; the other, without 
this frontispiece, was a courtesy to 
the Mennonites who believe in sprin- 
kling. This courtesy of one denomi- 
nation, for another occurs in various 
ways in the product of these early 
presses: the ABC und Namen-Buch-

•The Church-Related College 
| Must Be Preserved For 
Post- War Services 

Contrary to the attitudes at the beginning of this war, the 
church-related colleges are confident of their survival, so much 
so that they are now giving greater and deeper thought to their 
place in the post-war world. A two-fold question springs to mind 
in this regard: Why are the church-related colleges to be pre- 
served for post-war service? 

Let us consider first the why : Three reasons can be offered 
in answer to this question. First, the Church College is 'instru-> 
mental in the advancement of the liberal arts. The value of liberal 
arts is being much debated today. The debate is being waged be- 
tween those who feel that mere factual education is sufficient and 
those who feel that there must be a medium of interpreting these 
facts into meaningful experience. The latter school defends the 
liberal arts which Dr. Conant of Harvard feels ceitain will sur- 
vive. He bases his assumption' on the probable reaction against 
technical subjects by post-war youth and on the American liberal 
arts tradition. 

Second, the Church College is instrumental in the advance- 
ment of Christianity. Dean Stonecipher, in a recent contribution 
to the Telescope, remarked that, "A Church without Colleges 
would not long survive." This is quite true, but we must go a little 
farther and point out with him that this does not refer to mere 
cienominationalism. Christianity in its wider sense is preserved 
through the religious traditions, curriculum and extra-curricular 
program of the Church College. 

Third, the Church College tends to pay closer attention to the 
individual student. There is a closer teacher-student tie-up in the 
Church College. Directors of Kengious Education are at hand for 
personal, religious, moral, ana social guidance. In addition there 
is less tendency toward lace discrimination in an institution 
whose fundamental traditions are Christian. Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege has always opened her doors to both Negros and Jews. Only 
occasionally have there been instances of individuals on the 
campus whose ignorance and intoleiance have made those 01 
another race uncomfortable.

Scholarship Exams 
For March 24*25 

Dr. Clyde A. Lynch announced to- 
day that Lebanon Valley College will 
again conduct scholarship exams af- 
ter having omitted them last year. 

In pre-war years these exams were 
conducted on the weekend that coin- 
cided with the May Festival. How- 
ever, since the May Festival has been 
eliminated for the duration, the ex- 
ams have been moved up to Friday 
and Saturday, March 24 and 25.

Graybill Obsequies 
Held Tuesday 

Deceased Was An Honor 
Student in Class of '44 

Funeral services for the late Ruth 
Graybill were held on Tuesday, Feb- 
ruary 15, at 2:30 p.m., in the Penbrook 
Grace United Brethren Church. The 
Rev. Dr. H. E. Scheaffer, pastor of 
the church, officiated. Burial was 
made at Shoop's Cemetery, Harris- 

Ruth, a member of the Januaiy, 
1944, graduating class, was in ailing 
health for some tirne. Her illness be- 
came acute and necessitated her hos- 
pitalization last November. Her con- 
dition grew steadily worse and dur- 
ing the Christmas vacation Dr. Lynch, 
president of Lebanon Valley College, 
presented her with her degree in view 
of the fact that during her four years 
on the campus she was a member of 
the Dean's Honor Roll. 

This step on the part of college au- 
thorities coupled with the kindness of 
Ruth's many classmates and friends' 
who remembered her with Christmas 
gieetings seemed to give her new 
hope, for she began to show signs of 
recovery. She was removed to her 
home in Penbrook last January where 
she continued to improve until her 
sudden relapse and death last Satur- 
day, February 12. She was twenty- 
two years of age. 

Coming to Lebanon Valley College 
as an honor graduate of John Harris 
High School, Harrisburg, Ruth con- 
tinued her high academic work. So- 
cially she was a member of the Clio- 
nian Literary Society, Biology Club, 
and Chem Club. She was a member of 
Penbrook Grace United Brethren 

Surviving are the deceased's par- 
ents, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin B. Gray- 
bill; a brother, Midshipmen Armor

emy, Annapolis, Maryland, and her 
grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles

Feeling that those people now en- 
gaged in the college training pro- 
grams are preparing for war, and 
that ex-servicemen who wish to go to 
college after the war will be unpre- 
pared for normal college life, Presi- 
dent Charles Seymour of Yale Uni- 
versity announced recently that an 
Institute of Collegiate Study for Ex- 
Servicemen will be established at New 

The returned veterans who attend 
the institute will be given special op- 
portunities in their choice of quarters, 
and special guidance in their courses. 

Three main objectives of the insti- 
tute will be: provision of a general 
education of breadth and solidity; 
competence in a chosen field, which is 
neither vocational nor strictly profes- 
sional, and the development of the ha- 
bit of independent work. — I. C. P. 

In his ethics class, Mr. Shultz, of 
Dickens College, asked, "What are the 
three Protestant additions to the

response, "Faith, hope and charity,"

honor and obey." — The Dickinsonimi.

conserv Artists? 

Reports of dissatisfaction have reached the writer concern- 
ing the choice of Conservatory artists whose pictures will appear 
in the coming Quittie. Conservatory students feel that the faculty 
would be more competent in working out a system of choosing the 
artists, and that a choice of this importance should not rest within 
the hands of a small group of students. 

The committee, as chosen this year, was not truly repre- 
sentative of the entire Conservatory and allowed the prejudices 
of the individual members to interfere with the selections, as is 
evidenced by the determination to eliminate one student for 
purely personal reasons. 

Music students also express the opinion that the Conservatory 
artist section should be limited to Conservatory students. 

The concensus of opinion is that the method of selecting 
Conservatory artists should be changed, in order to insure equality 
of opportunity for all Conservatory students. 

our Weekly 

The glories of our blood and state 
Are shadows, not substantial things; 

The recent death of Ruth Graybill 
araws our attention to the eternai 
truth of the words of James Shirley. 
Truly, Death the Leveller is no re- 
specter of persons; age, position, col- 
or, or creed; none can stay our pass- 
ing from this earthly state. Yet, know- 
ing this, we continue to pattern our 
lives deriantly, as though we alone 
could break the bonds of death. 

liuth did not want to die any more 
than you or i. She shared our hopes 
and our dreams for the iuture. She 
saw tnese hopes crasn. Her neaiiu 
broke, but still she went on living; 
still she went on fighting, hoping, 
thinking, dreaming. But deatii was 
inevitable. Does this imply that all 
her living was in vain? . . . No. 

She shared with us our Christian 
belief that though death is inevitable, 
it can not hold us through eternity. 
Christians do not bury their dead for- 
ever. Metaphorically speaking, they 
put them to bed. The Christian burial 
ground is called a cemetery, "a sleep- 
ing place." It stems from Christ's lik- 
ening death unto sleep. After death, 
as after sleep, man is awakened to a 
rew and fresher life. This is Christ 's 
promise of immortality. It is the light 
that shatters the gloom accompanying 
the death of friends, of relatives, of 
loved ones. Let us look now upon the 
words of the Master who said: 

. . . I am the resurrection, anil the 
life: he that believeth in me, though 
he were dead, yet shall he live: 

And wiwsoever tiveth and believeth 
in me shall never die . . . 

Is this not a comforting thought? 
We need not resign ourselves to the 
inevitability of death. Faith in Christ 
will help us give the most to this life 
and carry us triumphantly through 
the "Valley of the shadow of death" 
to another world. As Christians, we 
believe that Ruth Graybill is not gone 
forever, but she stands on the thresh- 
old of a better world. — The Editor. 

Wintei ha* put in it's appearance at last, and high time too . . . all 
of us forgot our college "dignity" and had some fun for ourselves . . . 
chapped hands (and faces) saem to be the main result. 


The dance on Friday night was the leading event of our Valentine 
celebration . . . neat decorations, but definitely, we all agree . . . and 
the work of Dan Cupid was quite in evidence . . . Kania and Eleanor 
Freezeman found mutual interests . . . the usual Kauffman-Hershey com- 
bination was in evidence, at least for a while . . . Lloyd Fagen beamed 
upon a lassie from Lebanon . . . and the committee looked on, too tired 
to do anything else. 

Girls, did you note the corsage Betty June Butt returned from F. &. M. 
bearing. Why can't we all be invited to Valentine parties that boast such 
attractions ? 

The post office was mighty crowded on Monday morning with all the 
co-eds expecting fond remembrances from their one and only's. Woe to 
the man who forgot to remember the occasion ... his excuse better be good. 


We can't help mentioning that David Sheetz was elected class wolf 
at Hershey. High. Maybe that yellow plaid jacket did the trick! 

Latest thing on records is the sound of Miles Harriger's voice . . . Phil 
hasn't quite worn out the record but if you haven't heard it yet, we'd sug- 
gest doing it soon before the risk is worn too thin. 

What about the female mosc frequently seen with Jack Wolfe . . . 
sort of different on campus! 

By the way, Jean Bedgar condescended to go out with a man Saturday 
last . . . will improbabilities never cease happening ... the men of the 
campus please note: you may be lucky enough to date her if you try. 

Epic making history took place in North Hall when Nancy Saurman 
and Barbara Kolb finally decided to clean house . . . they iound almost 
a case of coke, milk, pepsie, etc. bottles, and in general their room is no 
longer recognizable . . . then too, that picture, or should I say poster, of 
Dale knocks you down when you enter the place . . . right good picture 
of the man though . . . brings back sweet memories of the good old sum- 
mer time. 

Rettew favored some of his admirers by sending them reasonable fac- 
simalies of himself this week past . . . 

Jackie MacDonald gets aiound these days ... the new frosh seem to 
think she's pretty nice . . . but who doesn't. 

Sanders was in his element over the week-end . . . the big moment 
from Wilmington was occupying his time, most definitely! 

Did you notice the ballerina effect that Josie Bittner created the other 
day. Her long cocoa stockings caused quite a stir ... but they may have 
been an asset in her hopping hobby. 

Hartz gave advice to the frosh ferns on how to get rid of a man no 
longer deemed worthy of attention. Maybe she could arrange another series 
of lectures for those of us who missed her first. 

Fifi and some other South Hall lassies went skating to wear off some 
sxcess energy . . . was the attraction skating or uniforms! 

But the snow of the afternoon has effected the ability of your columnist 
to concentrate . . . thus endeth the gossip.

Second Semester 
Competitions Begin 
For Day Students 

Schnee's Quintet Defeats 
Kintzer's Lads in Opener 

Competition got under way in the 
second installment of the Day Student 
Basketball League on February 2, 
when a team headed by Edgar Schnee 
defeated the charges of Brian Kintzer, 
50-38. February 7 saw Kintzer's quin- 
tet spoil Gabe Frank's debut as a cap- 
tain to the tune of 58-23. 

Led by Big "Hank" Detweiler who 
took a busman's holiday from the col- 
lege varsity, Schnee's men notched a 
clean-cut victory over "Chink" Kint- 
zer's outfit. As if Hank's 23 points 
were not enough to show his team- 
mates the way to victoiy, his diminu- 
tive running mate, Bob Bashore, chip- 
ped in with 15 markers to complete 
the rout. Malcolm Parr was high man 
for the losers with 18 tallies followed 
by Ted Lenker with 10. 

Kintzer's Mighty Mites jumped 
from the red side of the ledger to the 
black by virtue of their ovei whelm- 
ing win over Gabe Frank's operatives. 
Having built up a terrific 33 to 5 
lead at half-time, the conquerors were 
content to coast the rest of the way 
in, despite the fact that Gabe Frank 
put on a one man show in the second 
half for a final accumulation of 9 
field goals. The Mites boasted a trio 
of heavy scorers in Malcolm Pair 
•with 26 pointers, Ted lenker with 15, 
and Russ Gingrich with 10. 


Since the start of the second semes- 
ter, January 24, an unusually high 
number of additions has been made to 
the Lebanon Valley College Library — 
203 books of fiction and non-fiction, 
new books recently published, older 
ones which were required, and forty 
children's books. The children's books, 
which date from 1804 to 1890, are be- 
ing used to build up an historical col- 

Included among the other accessions 
is the gift from the Lebanon Rotary 
Club, Preston E. James' book: Latin 
America. Decatur of the Old Navy, 
by Helen Nicolay, which adds to the 
Library's store on the Pennsylvania 
Dutch, has been purchased, and so 
has Morley Robert's life of the author 
of Green Mansions, entitled, W. II. 
Hudson, a Portrait. Some of the other 
additions are: Antonine Vallentin's, 
Leonardo Da Vinci, Eddy Sherwood's 
A Portrait of Jes-us, Mark Van Dor- 
en's Liberal Education, Wendell Will- 
kie's One World, and Joseph Klaus- 
ner's From Jesus to Paul. 

Gabe Frank's Five 
Upsets Schnee<Aien 

Gabe Frank's surprising quintet 
toppled Edgar Schnee and his men 
from the ranks of the undefeated on 
February 9, by the score of 33-24. 

Exhibiting a tight defense that en- 
abled them to lead their rivals by an 
11-8 count at half-time, Gabe's hoop- 
sters turned on the heat in the final 
period, the result being 22 points and 
the ball game. Captain Frank paced 
his team with 17 markers while the 
presence of Bob Early was keenly felt 
through 10. The defeat of Schnee brot 
about a three way tie for top position 
in the league, each team now having 
lost one and won the same number.

Dutchmen Trim Elizabethtown 
For First Win This Season 

Men of the U. S. armed forces are demonstrating they can appreciate 
and in many cases perform, music of the highest complexity, says The 
March of Time's "Upbeat In Music." Above is Sergeant Eugene List, 
heard in the film playing the Rachmaninoff Concerto in C Minor. 

Bea Wain, song star of radio's "Hit Parade," and a favorite with our 
troops, is shown putting a torrid number on the air in a scene from 
March of Time's "Upbeat In Music." 

What Kind Of Music 
Do Our Boys Prefer? 

After the initial shock of war, one 
of our first discoveries was that boys 
in scattered outposts sometimes gef 
restive, especially under enforced in- 

America's war production was in 
high, but here was a factor that 
nadn't been counted on. Washington 
gave thought, came bacK with the an- 
ower — music! A simple solution, it 
\»ouid appear, but as The March or 
a line film, "Upbeat in Music," re- 
veals, it wasn't so simple. 

What kind of music to send? Army 
bands? Or did the boys want hot jazz? 
And what of the wide audience of mu- 
sic-lovers in service who had learned 
to love the great symphonies? Did the 
boys want, perhaps, just some good 
rollicking songs to sing, like "Tipper- 
ary"? Perhaps they wanted phono- 
graph records? Or would only live 
music, made by themselves or some 
of their number, do the trick? 

The powers-that-be called in the top 
names in the world of music, and 
together they went into a huddli. 
Some of the things tliey talked about 
have been carried oui with sti iking 
success, as the film shows. But the 
most interesting disclosures made by 
the film concern the kinds of music 
our* boys prefer. 

And what kinds are those? Every 
kind. Huge auditoriums of service 
men listen attentively to Sergeant Eu- 
gene List as he plays Rachmaninoff's- 
Concerto in C Minor. Troops swing 
out to the spirited newstyle marches 
of Captain Glenn Miller's Army Air 
Force Band. Men on leave and their 
sweethearts crowd around Benny 
Goodman's bandstand. And somewhere 
in the Pacific, a little group is hud- 
dled around a phonograph, listening 
to one of the Army "V-Discs," this 
one a hot jazz selection. 

Yes, U. S. music has gone to war. 
Whether it be the Boston Symphony 
as it responds to the master touch of 
Serge Koussevitzky, the sprightly pi- 
anistics of Art Tatum, the songs of 
Perry Como, the genius of Elman, or 

the Hit Kit song sheets and tonettes 
that help the boys furnish their own 
music, the end is the same — high mor- 
ale and the continued will to win. 

The late George Gershwin, making 
an almost unique film appearance in 
this issue, might hear his "I Got 
Rhythm," played in Italy or sung in 
Tarawa. Marian Anderson's lovely 
voice thrills thousands of our troops 
over the airwaves. Bea Wain puts 
over a hot number for the boys. Mu- 
sicians everywhere, famous or ob- 
scure, lend their talents for the com- 
mon cause. 

Their efforts are not in vain. Per- 
haps this explains, too, why our boys 
like all this music, however varied it 
might seem to the insensitive ear. Is 
it because running through it all, they 
detect a common - theme, a song of 
victoiy ? — Ad.

Lose to Lehigh Tn 
Second Court Clash 

Cashing in on their tilt with Eliza- 
bethtown College by a 44-30 verdict, 
the Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon Val- 
ley College gained their initial victory 
of the present campaign on February 
10, on the Annville High court. 

Playing superb ball in the opening- 
period, the Intrierimen were able to 
rack up 17 points while holding their 
opponents to 7. They continued this 
pace by adding 11 more in the follow- 
ing quarter, so that they were able to 
leave the floor at half-time leading 
by a 28-14 count. The third chukker 
saw the Elizabethtown quintet put up 
their stiffest resistance of the contest 
to outscore their hosts by 12 to 11. 
The Dutchmen, however, were not to 
be denied this game, and they took 
over the play in the final stages to in- 
sure their well-won decision. 

Frankie Shupper, who has been the 
spark plug of the Valley courtmen all 
season, played his finest game to date 
by gaining a high total of 26 count- 

Teammate Dick Hoerner cut the 
cords for 6 markers while Buck of the 
losers posted double figures in the 
scoring column with 15. 

Bethlehem was the scene of conflict 
on February 5, when the Lebanon 
Valley courtsters dropped their sec- 
ond successive contest to the Lehigh 
Engineers. Collins and Macjzan were 
key men in the conquerors' offensive 
with 20 and 13 points respectively. 
In the absence of Shupper as scor- 
ing leader for the Dutchmen, Dick 
Hoerner took over with 12 counters.

Community Concert 
Held March 2 Is 
Third Of Season 

Erica Morini, violinist, was the so- 
loist for the third Community Concert 
of the season which was held Thurs- 
day, March 2, 1944, at 8:15 P. M., in 
the Lebanon High School Auditorium. 

Miss Morini has been acclaimed 
"Queen of Fiddlers" and she truly 
upheld that reputation. In a review 
of a concert in St. Louis, the St. Lou- 
is Globe states: "It is all but impos- 
sible to believe that a woman could 
evoke that big and powerful tone sli3 
coaxes from her Stradivarius. It is a 
brilliant, firm tone. Sure, pure, beau- 
tiful, astringent, never over-sweet. A 
tone that leaps and plunges in spar- 
kling cascades like a mountain tor- 
rent." The same can be said of her 
concert in Lebanon. 

Miss Morini is master of both style 
and technique. Outstanding in her 
performance was the grace and elas- 
ticity of her bowing, the excellence oC 
the quality of her tone in the high 
positions. The audience was thrilled 
with her playing. Special mention 
must also be made of her spiccato 
bowing. Following is the program:

S. W. F. Project 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Marcii 
13 and 14, Lebanon Vallay College 
will welcome to its campus Rev. Sam- 
uel G. Ziegler, General Secretary of 
the U. B. Foreign Mi.sionary Society, 
ai d Dr. Hovermab of the U. B. Home 
Mission Board. Both men will be cha- 
pel speakers and will open the 1944 
Student Wo: Id Friendship Project. 

The Student World Friendship Pro- 
ject is supported by Ottarbein Co'lege, 
Lebanon Valley College, Indiana Cen- 
tral College, York College, Shenando- 
ah Junior College and Bonebrake The- 
ological Seminary- It began in 1927 
when the students of the United 
Brethren colleges contributed a fund 
to the support of Albert Academy, a 
secondary school for boys at Free- 
town, West Africa. 

In 19C0, the students of the sup- 
porting institutions decided to change 
the plan and raise a fund large 
enough to support a student represen- 
tative, selected from the student body 
of the College contributing the most 
to the fund, to go to Africa to teach 
for a term of two years. The amount 
needed for such an endeavor is $1,000, 
divided as follows: salary, $750, and 
transportation, $250. 

Those who have been sent to teach 
at Albert Academy are: Helen Cole 
Young, Otterbein '32, (1932-34) ; 
Chester O. Gjodman, Lebanon Valley 
College '33, (1935-37) ; Vaughn Lea- 
min, York College '41, (1938-40), and 
Vavelir.e Babbit, Indiana Central Col- 
lege '41, ,(1941 to date). 

The local campaign is being direct- 
ed by Sarah Stauffcr of the YWCA 
and James Flinchbaugh of the YMCA. 

Dr. Hovermale and Rev. Ziegler 
have also announced that in addition 
to launching the Student World 
Friendship Campaign, they will inter- 
view all students manifesting an in- 
terest in the missions, both foreign 
and domestic. 


Faculty, Administration 
Contribute 100 Per Cent 
To Building Campaign 

The Faculty and Administrative Of- 
ficers of Lebanon Valley College have 
made a 100 per cent contribution to 
the Building and Endowment Cam- 
paign. Every professor and officer 
has contributed to this victory. 

The amount raised among the Fac- 
ulty and Administrative Staff is 
$5880, according to figures released 
by Campaign Headquarters. 

Dr. Samuel H. Derickson, Professor 
of Biology, headed this phase of the 
Campaign. He was assisted by Dr. H. 
H. Shenk, Professor of History, and 
Dr. G. A. Richie, P:ofessor of Bible 
and Greek. 



Dr. and Mrs. A. H. M. Stonecipher have mailed invitations announcing 
the wedding of their daughter, Verna P. Stonecipher .(left), '44, to R. How-

mony will be performed on Sunday, March 26, at 4:00 P. M., in the Annville 
United Brethren Chvrch. 

A general invitation to the wedding is being hereby extended through LA 
VIE COLLEGIENNE, of which the groom-to-be was Associate Editor, to the 
students of the College.

'Men Day Students' House 

Certain recent events make it necessary for us to define the use of the 
Men Day Students' House on Sheridan Avenue. The first floor is set aside 
for men day students as a lounge, study, and game room. It is nothing 
else. It is not a date parlor for either day or dorm students, especially after 
6:00 P.M. The second floor consists of offices and a private apartment. As 
to the offices, there are three: One for the Alumni Secretary, Dr. Balsbaugh; 
one for the Publicity Department under Rev. Sponseller; and one for LA 
VIE COLLEGIENNE. The latter tw have recently been missing some of 
their materials which include envelopes, paste, folders, etc. The materials 
found in these offices are not for consumption by anyone except those people 
connected with the Publicity Department, the Alumni Office, and LA VIE 
COLLEGIENNE, respectively. The cooperation of all students is urged in 
an effort to keep the Men Day Students' House in line with its defined 


Every now and then a new thing pops up on campus and serves its 
brief span before retiring forever from the scene of action, carrying with 
it the term "fad." Within tecent weeks, however, there has arisen an in- 
novation which we feel is more than another fad — the choral speaking proj- 
ect. The chapel program several Fridays ago deserves every possible praise, 
both for the leader and hsr associates. It is gratifying to note that plans 
have been made for a continuation of this kind of work on the Lebanon 
Valley College campus. Already, an organization has been formed to pro- 
mote an up-and-coming campus activity. Orchids to Bud Hershey. 


Much of the world's finest music, 
especially that of the western world, 
has been written out of a sincere reli- 
gious experience, and a deep venera- 
tion for God. Outstanding in the field 
of religious music are three men, two 
of which precede the other in time by 
almost a century, but all of whicn 
have written music with the same in- 
tention . . to glorify God and Jesus 
Christ. Bach and Handel did most of 
their writing in the first half of the 
18th century, while Mendelssohn made 
his rich contribution during the early 
half of the 19th century. To refer to 
all the religious music that proceeded 
from the souls of there men would 
take volumes. It is sufficient to men- 
tion but a few that are appropriate 
to the anticipated celebration of Eas- 

The St. John Passion of Bach is 
notable for many things, and the con- 
tralto aria, "All Is Fulfilled," is of 
particular beauty. The music por- 
trays the Lion of Judah in His dying 
moments on the cross. From Handel's 
immortal Messiah, "He Was Despised 
and Rejected," a poignant reminder 
of Christ's reception on earth. From 
the same work, "He Shall Feed His 
Flock" comforts the soil with the thot 
that the Shepherd provides man's ev- 
ery need. St. Paul by Mendelssohn 
contains the story of Paul's conver- 
sion on the Damascus road, magnifi- 
cently expressed in, "But the Lord Is 
Mindful of His Own." Paul is moving 
toward Damascus to bind the Chris- 
tians, but their safety is assured be- 
cause "He remembers His children." 
Eli'ah, also by Mendelssohn, is anoth- 
er of the majestic religious works 
conceived by men of profound reli- 
gious feeling. From it, "O Rest In 
the Lord" ranks among the truly 
great pieces of our religious musical 
heritage. These are but a few among 
thousands of compositions with a sim- 
ilar purpose. Bach, Handel, and Men- 
delssohn were favored with a greater 
genius than some of their lesser fel- 
low composers, but all had the intent 
to gorify Almighty God when writing 
this sort of music. It seems quite evi- 
dent that if divine inspiration is a 
fact, these men were truly inspired. 
Mr sic is man's highest expression, 
when words fail music seems to suc- 
ceed. It indeed succeeds in present- 
ing us with a portrait of God, and in 
instilling us with a feeling of rever- 
ence and humility. There is no great- 
er aid to worship than the musical 
creations of inspired men. 

All of the selections mentioned 
above are available by the eminent 
American contralto Marian Anderson. 
Her voice knows no equal. 


The purpose of this editorial is not one of mere fault finding: on the 
contrary, it is presented as a suggestion to the powers-that-be, either the 
Student-Finance Committee or the College, for the establish- 
ment of a more practical method of financing LA VIE COLLEGIENNE. 
With the present system, our Business Department functions under a dual 
financial set-up. All funds from the student activities' fund are retained 
in the College office while the income derived from ads and otlur sources 
is deposited in an account at the Annville National Bank. It has happened 
that several times during the last semester our Business Manager has had 
to postpone balancing her books' because certain bills turned over to the 
Treasurer's Office for payment from the student activity fund had not yet 
been paid. As a result, everyone has been pretty much in the dark concern- 
ing the number of LA VIE issues lemaining to be printed. The embarrass- 
ments suffered were by no means few. 

Thus, our suggestion is this, that there be established but one fund for 
LA VIE COLLEGIENNE. Let this fund be taken care of by the Business 
Manager, whose books would be subjsct to balancing by a student-faculty 
committee twice a year. In addition, to reduce the fear that such funds might 
be misappropriated, the persons responsible for the use of these funds 
should be bonded. This, it seems to us, is the only business-like way of 
financing LA VIE.

. . . Numerous remains of snow men on the campus bear witness to the 
fact. . . . But when winter comes can spring be far behind. Or so goes 
the saying, anyway. 

And what a celebration! The low lights, soft music, and punch . . . 
well, anyway the atmosphere was most conducive to fun and . . . well, 
we'll settle for fun. The exterior elements were the only fly in the oint- 
ment . . . the blizzard did its best to discourage the Oionians but its best 
was not enough ... so with boots protruding from gowns and hair tight?}y 
bound in scarfs all arrived intact at the Hotel Hershey for an evening of 
hilarity . . . the soldiers were definitely a group of good sports and all 
the couples were well matched. 

Clare Schaeffer and her escort, Bob Donough, were seen from time to 
time — but only from time to time. . . . They were the mystery couple of 
the evening. 

"Teeny"' had a lire wi'h which she seemed to dazzle all the "men" — how 
about sharing the secret "Teeny." 

The shorter of the Bartels had a time keeping up with the Army. . . . 
May we ask, did she ever agree to the chicken dinner date. 

Not only did the so'diers dance with the North Hall lassies, but also 
took them to dinner the day after — at the Hotel, too. . . . Among the 
lucky were Golden and "Squeekie" plus three other fortunate damsels. North 
Hall has been noted for the personalities of its inmates. 

The complicated system of hallwrys caused Souders and Marjorie Frantz 
no end of difficulty. ... At least they blame it on the halls. 

And what about Jean Bedgar going from one embarrasment to the 
next — especially when her escort greeted the Dean with such masculine 


How utterly gruesome we e the "ghosts" who waked the sleeping co-eds 
the other night — with their hollow laughs and horrible appearance, they 
looked like the real thing. . . . Whose brainstorm was the episode? . . . 
Must have been a psychological case of something or the other. 

It's been very difficult to keep tabs on Mr. Sponseller since he was 
stricken with the pre-father jitters. . . . All's well that ends well. 

The new frosh boys (at least some of them) have referred to the 
L.V.C. co-eds in rather uncertain adjectives. . . . Come, come now boys, 
we can't all be perfect! 

Has it occured to any one that Easter Vacation, which will be five 
days in length, believe it or not, is almost at hand. . . . Only nineteen 
more working days until that longed-for pause that refreshes. . . . It's 
never too early to start thinking abcut the best way to make use of those 
ler use moments you mighty possibly have — unless ycu're in the same boat 
as yours tru'y and will spend those moments writing the term papers you 
should have started before (darn it).

R. .Battlota ,of 1103 Serrill Ave., 
Yeadon, Pa., one of the nation's most 
outstanding young pianists, has begun 
specialized Army music training in 
the Band Training Unit of Camp Lee's

in the unit's intensive course of eight 
weeks, which is begun following the 
completion of six weeks of basic mili- 
tary training. Not only do the musi- 
cians learn to perform as members of 
standard Army bands, but they pre-

as individuals, ready to take musical 
cheer to troops in any part of the 

Prior to his induction in July, 1943, 
Private Battista held an enviable po- 
sition in the musical world. High- 
lights of his career include his debut 
with the Philadelphia Symphony Or- 
chestra in 1939, his graduation in 1940 
from the Juilliard Graduate School 
and his first appearance in New 
York's Town Hall in the same year. 
He was the first representative of the 
Pianistic Youth of U. S. to tour Bra- 
zil, South America, under the spon- 
sorship of Brazilian Ambassador Mar- 
tins and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. He 
was elected to the faculties of Phila-

The Va'ley Hono: Squad opened its 
1944 baikeiball season on February 
10 with a 17-14 win over their Eliza- 
bcthtown College rivals. On Feb. 17 
the girls again copped a win, this 1 
time at the expense of the Reading 
St. John's Church c.ub. 

The opposition in the Elizabeth- 
town struggle was strong. At the end 
of ths first quarter both clubs boast- 
ed a 4-point total. At half time the 
Va'leyettes were out in front with a 
score of 12-8. Scoring only one point 
in the third period they were dead- 
locked at 13-all by their determined 
rivals. But fate was with the Hen- 
derson gals as they entered- the fourth 
quarter -to outscors their opponents 
4-1 for a final score of 17-14. 

Bittner hit high for the Valkyettes 
with 9 counters but was outpointed 
by Elizabethtown's Mumma who gar- 
ne ed 11 tallies. Moyer and Shsttel 
cepped 4 points apiece for the home 

The Reading encounter was a high- 
scoring proposition for both clubs as 
Henderson's t:am kept up a steady 
attack. The visitors were not easily 
vanquished in the first period and 
trailed bv only one point as they en- 
tered the second quarter. However, 
the Blue and White scoring machine 
went to work in canto two to come 
out, on top again but with a higher, 
28-11. margin. The home club again 
cutscored the visitors in the third pe- 
riod. However, the fourth quarter saw 
the Reading "Saints" cutscore the 
locals 12-10, but without avail for ths 
latter wrs already firmly established 
in the victo.'s seat. 

Lutz of the "Saints" was top lady 
for the night with 15 counters. Moy- 
er of the Hender&on la:sies was sec- 
ond with 14 tallies. Tie fcr third hon- 
ors were Boydjeff of the "Saints" and

Dr. Moore Inspects 
Music Conservatory 
For N.A.S.M. March 1 

The Lebanon Valley College Conser- 
vatory of Music welcomed to the cam- 
pus Dr. Earl V. Moore, head of the 
Music Department of the University 
of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, who in- 
spected the Conservatory on Wednes- 
day, March 1. 

Dr. Moore is chairman of the curri- 
culum committee of the National As- 
sociation of Schools of Music. Two 
years ago he represented the associa- 
tion as examiner. The LVC Conser- 
vatory was then admitted as an asso- 
ciate member of the organization. 

Each school admited must undergo 
a two year probation period. This year 
was tho end of that time for the L. V. 
C. Conservatory and Dr. Moore was 
again examiner. 

He arri.ed Tuesday evening as a 
guest of Dr. and Mrs. Lynch. While 
here, he visited clashes, the library, 
and conferred with Conservatory fac- 
ulty members. A small recital was 
given for him in the afternoon. 


The Chemistry Gab held its month- 
ly meeting on Thursday, February 24, 
at seven-thirty o'clock. Herman Wei- 
ser presided in the absence of the 
President, Ruth Haverstock. He also 
gave chemistry news at the opening

Valley Bows 
Twice On 

Gettysburg and Albright 
Find Range of Dutchmen 

A hard-fighting Lebanon Valley 
team was forced to bow before Gettys- 
burg by a 53-36 verdict on February 

Overwhelming the Dutchmen in the 
first half of the game, the G-burg 
team, in a terrific scoring spree, rack- 
ed up a 36-15 lead. However, the In- 
trieri-men recovered from their ear- 
lier setback to hold down their oppo- 
nents to 10 points in the third quar- 
ter while scoring 9 of their own. The 
final quarter saw the scrappy L. V. 
courtmen actually outscore the Get- 
tysburg team 12 to 7, thereby evening 
up the score a bit. 

Frankie Shupper again proved his 
playing ability by piling up 19 points 
for Valley. Parnell, Martin, and Rob- 
erts posted double figures in the scor- 
ing column with 28, 12, and 11 respec- 

The Albright game turned out to be 
a thrilling encounter on February 23, 
when the Dutchmen were overcome 
47-39. Keeping close on the heels of 
the Albright team, the Intrieri-men 
were only 1 point behind at the end 
of the third quarter. But Dame For- 
tune seemed to favor the Albright 
courtmen who broke through in the 
last quarter to gain the victory. 

The exciting game featured Shup- 
per as scoring leader for the L. V. 
team with 15 points. Durko and Lan- 
dis were key men for the conquerors 
with 19 and 15 points respectively.

Dr. Evans Speaks 
To Student Body 
On Zionism 

Dr. Richard E. Evans, widely-tra- 
veled Presbyterian minister of the 
Christian-Jewish Association, who left 
the pulpit to devote his time to help 
promote the American way of life, ad- 
dressed the students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College Monday, February 21. Dr. 
Evans spoke through the courtesy of 
those sponsoring his evening address 
at the Willow Street USO Club of 
Lebanon, Pennsylvania. 

In reference to the sacrifices that 
have to be made before the war is 
over, Dr. Evans stated: "You and 1 
and all mankind have a Jordan to 
cross. . . Yet there are barriers. These 
are the forces of bigotry, indifference, 
selfishness, and complacency." After 
showing how these "will do their best 
to keep the dream away" Dr. Evans 
pointed out further that though this 
war is supposed to be based on honor, 
we are not living up to our ideals. 

After the lecture, Dr. Lynch, Presi- 
dent of the College, invited the audi- 
ence to ask questions. In answer to 
one concerning the fate of the Cham- 
berlain White Paper, which disregards 
the provisions of the Balfour Declara- 
tion, Dr. Evans stated that after the 
war, "there will not be a complete ab- 
rogation of the Chamberlain White 
Paper, but rather a series of face-sav- 
ing postponements." 

He further upheld the Zionist cause 
by showing that the Jews had backed 
Montgomery at El Alamein, by giving 
instances of the Jews and Arabs liv- 
ing together peacefully, and by say- 
ing that the Jews had acquired Arab 
land only after having paid high 
prices for it.

nation from March 23 through March 
29, according to an announcement 
made today by Joseph Barnhard, na- 
tional chairman of the War Activi- 
ties Committee Red Cross Campaign. 

Theatres in this district, under the 
direction of Eaiie W. Sweigert, chair- 
man of the theatres committee for 
Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New 
Jersey and Delaware, are expects. 1 to 
cooperate 100 per cent in the drive for 
donations from movie patrons. 

Working in conjunction with local 
members of the Red Cross, aided by 
volunteers, the theatres plan to have 
collections taken up at every perform- 
ance during the week. 

"All of us realize," Sweigert saM. 
"the wonderful work being done for 
our servicemen and women by this 
grand organization But many of as 
fail to realize that each and every one 
of us, especia ly in these trying days 
of war, is part of it. Unless we sup- 
port it, it cannot function. And that 
would be a calamity. During the lasc 
year, aside from rendering personal 
service to servicemen and their fami- 
lies, this orgnization co'lected more 
than 5,000,000 pints of blood for plas- 
ma, recruited £0,000 nurses for the 
Army and Navy, pics 65,000 nurses' 
aides, supplied 925,000,000 pieces of 
surgical dressing, delivered 5,300,000 
packages to pri~oners of war, operated 
350 overseas d ^bs for servicemen and 
women and dirtrib- ted $77,000,000 in 
foreign war relief, in addition to 
meeting rrany other emergencies."

Fornoff is May 
Queen; Hess is 
Maid of Honor 

Court Ts Also Named in 
Chapel Poll on April 14 

Hazel Fornoff will be the Queen of 
the May at Lebanon Valley College 
for 1944, according to the results of 
a student poll conducted during the 
regular Friday morning Chapel in En- 
gle Hall on April 14. 

Standing in close second in the 
election and consequently Maid of 
Honor is Elizabeth Ann Hess. Both 
the Queen and her Maid are Seniors 
in the Conservatory of Music. The 
former is an outstanding student in 
the piano and organ department. The 
latter excels in the field of vocal mu- 
I sic. 

The Queen's court will be completed 
by the following girls who were also 
elected by the student body Gene 
Bowman, Marian Kreider, Anne 
Adams', Emma Catherine Miller, Blos- 
som Levitz, and Sara McGeehin. 

Y's Conduct World 
Friendship Drive 

At the present time, the Y.W.C.A. 
and Y.M.C.A. are conducting the an- 
nual Student World Friendship drive. 
Sara Stauffer represents the Y. W. 
C. A. and James Flinchbaugh repre- 
sents the Y. M. C. A. in charge of the 

The Project began in 1927 when the 
students of the United Brethren col- 
leges' and seminary contributed a 
fund for the support of Albert Acad- 
emy, a secondary school for boys' at 
Freetown, West Africa. Three years 
later the students decided to change 
the place and raise a fund large 
enough to support a student repre- 
4 sentative, selected from the student 
body of one of the colleges or semin- 
ary, to go to Africa to teach for a 
term of two years. The amount need- 
ed for one representative is $1,000 
divided as follows: salary $750; 
transportation $250. 

Each student on campus is asked 
to donate at least one dollar if pos- 
sible. The support of L. V. is needed 
in this vital effort.

Staff Sgt. Donmoyer, 
Former Student, 
Wins D. F. C. 

An Eighth Army Air Force Bomber- 
Station, England, April 14 — Staff 
Sergt. William M. Donmoyer, 22, Fly- 
ing Fortress waist gunner, has been 
awarded the Distinguished Flying 
Cross for "extraordinary achieve- 
ment" in combat with the enemy over 
Nazi Europe. The sergeant gunner al- 
ready holds the Air Medal with three 
oak leaf clusters (awarded in lieu of 
additional medals). 

His wife lives at 1019 Lehman 
street, Lebanon, Pa., and his parents, 
live at 44 West Main Street, Ann- 
ville, Pa. 

Donmoyer, veteran of more than a 
score of daylight bomber attacks on 
Germany and occupied countries, 
made his latest sortie to bomb Berlin 
on March 6. The sergeant thinks the 
Berlin operation was his most excit- 
ing mission to date. 

"I had seen German fighters be- 
fore, one kind now and another va- 
riety on another mission," he says-. 
"Over Berlin, however, the Luft- 
waffe sent up a real assortment. I 
saw several different types of Focke- 
Wulfs, Messerschmidts, and Junkers." 

Prior to joining the AAF, the ser- 
geant worked for Harry L. Meyer, of 
Cleona, Pa. He attended Lebanon Val- 
ley College for two years after gradu- 
ating from Annville High School Sn 
1939. He studied radio at the AAF 
school at Sioux Falls', S. D., and aerial 
gunnery at Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lt. Hollis Kieter '36 
Destroys Five Planes 
With One Bomb 

(The following story was written by 
Marine Private First Class Frederick 
A. Orehek, of 1264 East 59th St., 
Cleveland, O.) 

Marine Corps Air Depot, Miramar, 
Calif., April 5 — Five Japanese war 
planes parked wing to wing on an 
enemy airdrome on Ballale Island, 
were destroyed with one direct bomb 
hit by Marine First Lieutenant Hol- 
lis H. Kieter, Jr., 27, of Dayton, Vir- 
ginia, a torpedo bomber pilot, recent- 
ly returned from the Southwest Pa- 

Lieutenant Kieter brought his total 
to six last February when he set 
afire another Zero as it was getting 
ready for a take-off from a Rabaul 
fighter strip. 

The Air Medal holder participated 
in 37 strikes on enemy shipping, air- 
dromes' and ground emplacements. His 
squadron of Gruman Avengers played 
a vital role in spearheading the Al- 
lied drives in the Solomon Islands 
area. Operating from Guadalcanal, 
Munda, and Bougainville, the hard- 
hitting torpedo bombers sought out 
and neutralized Japanese fortifica- 
tions prior to invasion by landing 

Because of the hazardous conditions 
involved, night mine-sowing missions 
brought on many escapades with 
death, the lieutenant disclosed. 

"To isolate the Japs from their sup- 
ply ships, we plugged their harbors 
with mines," said Lieutenant Kieter. 
"Since we had to fly very low and 
level to lay them well, it was easy for 
their searchlights and ack-ack batter-

Every year it's the same thing all over again : the old staff 
says, "Goodbye," and the new staff rolls up it's sleeves and gets 
to work. It becomes monotonous to see and hear these repetitions. 
No one sheds any tears about it any more. People say they're 
sorry to be leaving and others say they're sorry to see them go — 
that's all there is to it. In consequence, we, the old staff, are on 
the spot — up a tree — if you like that phraseology better. We want 
to say goodbye in a way that you may know we mean it. We want 
to welcome the new staff, whoever they be, in a way that they 
may know that we are not merely "passing the buck" but that we 
are rooting for their success during the 1944-45 publication year. 

To them we say : "Good luck." To the Faculty Committee — 
Struble, Wallace, Rutledge, and Stokes: "Thank you." To all of 
you, our readers, "Goodbye." Time is a tyrant. This is our "30." 

Red Cross 

On page one of LA VIE COLLEGIENNE you will find the 
report of the recent Red Cross War Fund Drive sponsored on ou r 
Campus by our new Red Cross Unit. Twenty-six dollars, the total 
receipts from this drive, seems to be a very small amount for 
such a worthy cause. To the contrary, we feel that it is a great 
complement to the students of Lebanon Valley College to have 
raised this much. 

Our reasons for this view are these : First, the Lebanon Val- 
ley College Red Cross Chapter is still in its infancy. This was 
its first financial drive. Second, the drive was conducted sans 
newspaper publicity and sans person-to-person solicitation. Third, 
the drive came at a time when most of the money-earning stu- 
dents were catching up with their income tax payments. 

Believe us, we are not alibying for future poor showings. 
If and when our Campus Chapter of the American Red Cross 
stages another drive for funds, let's back it till it hurts. It did 
hurt some people to give this time, but we heard no complaints 
fiom anyone. Furthermore, the little hurt we may suffer by giv- 
ing to the best of our ability goes a long way in relieving another's 

In order to answer the question, 
"What is the present-day collegian's- 
version of an ideal professor?" the 
student newspaper at Westminster 
College conducted a survey among 
college men and women. 

Coeds prefer a man who under- 
stands "why I can't comprehend the 
intricate workings of a motor." He 
need not be young and good-looking. 
Boys prefer middle-aged women. 
Other requirements for the ideal 
prof are punctuality and accuracy, an 
enthusiastic interest in his subject, 
and use of humorous incidents to 
brighten up dry text-book material. 

To add a bit of humanism, students 
appreciate the touch of "absent- 
mindedness" so traditionally associat- 
ed with college professors. For ex- 
ample, forgetting that quiz he in- 
tended to spring as a surprise, or 
failing to call for that list of physics 
problems. — A.C.P. 


I like colleges that nestle 

In quiet little towns, 
And seem to offer something more 

Than credits, caps and gowns. 

I like classes filled with friends 
Who have a smile for me, 

I don't like profs who know me as 
Row 31, Seat 3. 

I hate to meet a former prof's 

Unrecognizing stare; 
I like the kind who knows your 

Your hopes, your love affair. 

I like Church-College profs who 
teach like wise, inspired crusad- 

Who take the time to read your 

And don't hire student graders. 

I like colleges which strive to learn 

Years later where you are; 
Yes, even though you've never been 
A campus queen or star. 

A mammoth institution holds 

Within its office space, 
Along with proof of my degree, 
A photo of my face. 

The most it knows about me is 

My city, birth, and class. 
I like my old Church-College best; 
It doesn't think en masse. 

She'll gaily cheer each grad's ca- 

With faith that's optimistic; 
To her a former student is 
No musty old statistic. 

The friends I made at old T. C. 

Passed not like ships at night; 
They send me lengthy letters still, 
Though I forget to write. 

I like colleges that nestle 
In quiet little towns

George Frederick Handel, the great- 
est composer England ever had, was 
born in 1685 at Halle, Germany. His 
great gifts for music were not culti- 
vated in his early education; for his 
intellectual pursuits were directed to- 
ward becoming a lawyer. After his 
father's death, which ended the fam- 
ily opposition to his musical career, 
Handel became second violinist in the 
orchestra at the opera house in Ham- 
burg. He subsequently traveled to 
Italy where his music gained him 
much favor among influential people. 
This success led to his return to Ger- 
many to become court composer at 
Hanover. Later he journeyed to Eng- 
land where his triumphs superceded 
those made in Italy. It was in Eng- 
land that he took up his permanent 
home, and became a naturalized Brit- 
ish subject. 

On one of his tours to England ne 
overstayed his leave from the Elector 
of Hanover. The Elector, in the mean- 
time, was made George the First of 
England. To regain favor with the 
sovereign Handel composed his fam- 
ous and delightful Water Music which 
he had played by a fifty piece orches- 
tra as the king floated down the 
Thames on a barge. The magic of mu- 
sic did the trick, and Handel was re- 
instated as a favorite of George 

The Water Music itself consists of 
twenty jolly themes and dance tunes, 
bourrees, hornpipes and so on joined 
loosely in a sort of serenade. The en- 
tire work is played infrequently — the 
usual custom being to play five or six 
parts arranged as a suite. The jovial- 
oty of the music is captivating and 
delightful. It is not heavy or serious, 
but light and sparkling with many 
sprightly tunes that one never tires of 
hearing. It is one of the sources of 
supreme musical enjoyment. 

Our Weekly 

Students attending a Christian lib- 
eral arts college are particularly for- 
tunate in their opportunities. We have, 
more than any other student, the ad- 
vantage of combining in our lives 
what Matthew Arnold has called He- 
braism and Hellenism. That is, we 
have the chance to merge in our per- 
sonalities, religion and education — two 
of the most vital and important bases 
of a democratic state. The education 
of course, comes from a serious ef- 
fort to acquire knowledge and wisdom 
during tenure at college. 

The religion is found at the source 
of our Christian heritage — at the foot 
of the cross of Christ who was God 
incarnate. It is He who can inspire 
and direct the lives of men toward a 
deeper appreciation of the values of a 
spiritually centered life. From Him 
are obtained the precepts to guide 
daily living in its constant associa- 
tion with our fellow men, who are our 
equals in the sight of Almighty God. 
The college campus that centers its re- 
ligious activities in the person of 
Christ, will find itself filled with new 
life, and a surging spiritual experi- 

Contemplation of Christ's life, His 
teachings, and His voluntary sacrifice, 
will bring us to a realization of our 
wretched natures, and at the same 
time plant in us the knowledge that 
there is much of worth to accomplish 
on earth, and that it is we who must 
strive toward the Kingdom of God. 
May we, like Paul, be inspired to re- 
concile Christianity and culture as he 
intended them to be united when he 
wrote: "For I am crucified with 
Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, 
but Christ liveth in me . . ."

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editor 
Dear Editor: 

Have you ever paused in your hustle and bustle from one building to 
another on the Campus of L.V.C. long enough to look up into the sky for 
a minute? Perhaps you did, and did you notice that there has NOT been 
an American flag, nor any other symbol of our patriotic spirit, flying on 
top the flag pole of our Administration building for the last two months? 
Well, why aren't we at least consistent? 

It was a little more than two years 
ago that we had a flag-raising cere- 
mony in our College Chapel, and part 
of it on the open campus, in sight of 
a raising flag a s we sang the Star- 
Spangled Banner. It was then that 
the College pledged its support to the 
war effort, and has continued to car- 
ry out that pledge. But why should 
we have a flag raising ceremony one 
time and then a little later forget that 
w e have a flag, which is the symbol 
of that which we love "the land of the 
free and the home of the brave." 

The ones who have authority to 
place said flag on our Campus would 
be very kind if they would see that 
our flag is openly displayed again so 
that we might not be ashamed to 
show others our college, and avoid 
the embarrassment of having a pros- 
pective student asking the question. 
"Dofsn't Lebanon Valley College have 
a flag on any of its buildings?" This 
might happen again to any one of 
us. Signed, 


Here it is spring, and we thought it would never arrive. To tell the 
truth, we still aren't quite sure, but signs of the times seem to bear witness 
to the fact. The yellow border of daffodils at the Conserv', the buds which 
can be seen (with the aid of a microscope) on the trees, and the most 
important new rings are the most obvious signs. Gavneta arrived back 
from Easter vacation displaying a most scrumptious diamond, while Jean 
Kitchen, it is rumored, will boast of one soon. 


That's exactly what Janice Stahl did with her few days of rest . . • 
and to Wisconsin, where the chocolate sodas come with INCH deep whipped 
cream on top — can you steam your imagination up to that? By the way 
has Janice remembered yet what she did Friday night of her visit there? 
Some people's memories . . . 

Sanders felt "drawn" to Delaware and Delia, so off he went and . . • 
well, let's drop the story there! 

Also "Bud" Hershey did a little traveling — naturally to spend the vaca- 
tion with Gerry. 

HAVE YOU HEARD? (If you have, listen again.) 

A bicycle which resides near Hershey was painted by its owner, Miss 
GiMa Tulli, during the vacation past, and was duly named Lady Macbeth. 
The christening has not yet taken place. Question — would or wouldn't Lady 
Macbeth turn over in her grave if we were to inform her of said fact? Also, 
is or isn't that a decent name to give to a self-respecting bike? 

Harriet Miller's daze has finally worn off . . . Sam has returned to 
the duties that UNCLE SAM requires of him . . . and Harriet is thinking 
seriously of finishing that term paper. 

Erma Loy certainly finds something funny in those letters that she 
receives so constantly. Else why the giggles? 

What about the newest pictoral addition to Workman's collection? We 
hear that it was a birthday present. 

What was it about Fifi Fisher's week-end guest that got Don ? 

Then, too, there's the "dummy" story of Marian M. The "jiggerboard 
suite" was certainly done up right! The only thing missing was a sig 11 ' 
"any resemblance to any member of this dorm is purely coincidental." 


With shouts of fiendish joy the bowling balls were sent flying up the 
alleys — and what sends! Some of our closest friends were almost no long?'" 
close, for with the ball went the bowler — (mainly S. S. S.). Gushie proved 
quite a star with a score of 175 — and friend Smarr remedied his score when 
he found that he was using the wrong fingers . . . tut, tut, Mr. Smarr. 

Sally Stauffer held one of the records; — slow motion, but a strike every 
time. And may we say thai (he \Y. A. A. made a direct" strike at fine ei>" 
tertainmeni — but definitely. 

We take this opportunity to welcome the Mothers to the campus a n 
hope they will have a grand time finding out how their daughters de» r 
spend the best part of their time!

Women's Snorts News 

A volley ball tournament is going on 
between the women day students and 
the dorm students. The soph day stu- 
dents have won 3 games while the 
dorm lassies have not managed to 
catch them unaware and thus have no 
wins to their credit. In one section of 
the freshman physical ed. class, the 
day students have won the class 
match with 4 games to the dorm 
frosh's 0. The other group has not 
completed their games, but the day 
girls lead with 2 games to the dorm's 
1. The tournament will be completed 
this week. 

Miss Henderson has posted names 
for the badminton tournament which

and chalk up the points for your

Names were also posted for a table 
tennis tournament which will end on 
April 29. The schedule is similar to 
the badminton order of games and 
must be completed definitely on that 
date. All women students taking part 
will also receive points for playing 
till eliminated. If you have a case of 
war nerves and want to relax, be sure 
to meet your partner and get those 
games played off in your spare time. 
May the best gals win.

Weiser Coos Too Honors 
In Men's Handball Singles 

Herman W«iser stole the crown in 
the Men's Singles Handball Tourna- 
ment held recently on the College 
handball court. 

In the finals with runner-up Ted 
Lenker, Weiser won two games: 21-17 
and 22-20. In the next game Lenker 
snapped back to win by a 21-13 mar- 
gin. The last game of the match was 
forfeited by Lenker, consequently giv-

were Weiser, Schnee, Smarr, Parmer, 
Lenker, Sanders, Cover, Souders, Fe-

Axe League 
Nearing Close 

Final Battles Are Crucial 
Ones For Rattlers & Bears 

Two hard fighting day student 
teams are battling for supremacy in 
the noon hour Axe League basketball 
games, as this year's schedule nears 
the end. The Rattlers have won 6 and 
lost 2. The Bears have won 6 and 
lost 3. 

On Wednesday, April 12, the Rat- 
tlers edged out the Wilcats by a score 
of 33-29. Detweiler and Souders high 
scored for the winners in an exciting 
game by scoring 20 and 8 pts. respec- 
tively. Gingrich with 14 pts. and Gru- 
man with 8 topped the Wildcat scor- 
ing list. 

Meeting the Rattler challenge head- 
on, the Bears streaked to an over- 
whelming 50-42 victory over the Wild- 
cats. Schnee and Bashore bewildered 
their opposition by dropping in 20 
and 19 pts. each. Kline followed up 
with 8 more. The Wildcat offense fea- 
tured Gingrich with 16 pts. and Fe- 
gan with 8. 

Including last Wednesday's game, 
the three games which are yet to be 
played will decide whether the Bears 
or the Rattlers will be victorious. 

Individual scoring features another 
close battle with Bashore and Det- 
weiler fighting it out for top honors. 
The first ten in individual scoring are 
as follows: 

Bashore, 162 pts.; Detweiler, 144 
pts.; Gingrich, 103 pts.; Kline, 83 
pts. ; Schnee, 74 pts. ; Lenker, 61 pts. ; 
Gruman, 51 pts. ; Fegan, 43 pts. ; Boy- 
er, 39 pts.; and Souders, 27 pts.

$99,273 Needed By May 9 to 
Assure Campaign Victory 

{From the April 11 edition of Leb- 
anon Valley College Campaign Neivs.) 

"At press time reports from the of- 
fice of Campaign Director George W. 
Williams indicate a slow, steady real- 
ization of the goal of our Campaign, 
$550,000. To date $450,727 of this tJj 

"A breakdown of this total reveals 
that of a goal of $50,000 each, the 
Alumni and the Lebanon County phas- 
es of the Campaign have contributed 
$34,864 and $28,286 respectively. The 
Church Campaign is forging ahead 
meanwhile with increased vigor as the 
reports on pages 2, 3, and 4 indicate. 

"Concentrating on the Campus it- 
self, we find that the students have 
pledged to date a total of $1,224. But 
they' were not the only active group 
on the campus. The Faculty and Ad- 
ministrative Staff have raised a sum 
of $5,885, while the Board of Trustees 
have realized a total of $21,325."

Frantz Named 
New Y.W. Head 

Other Officers Elected 
In Chapel Poll 

At the annual Y. W. C. A. elections 
held Friday, April 28, in Chapel, Mar- 
' jorie L. Frantz was chosen president 
for the 44-45 term, with Eleanor Her- 
shey assisting her as vice-president. 
Other officers elected were: record- 
j ing secretary, Sarah Stauffer ; corre- 
sponding secetary, Jean Bedger; 
treasurer, Miriam Jones; day student 
representatives, Martha Ross and Bet- 
ty June Gingrich. 

President Frantz announced that a 
cabinet would be chosen at a later 
date, possibly at the Y retreat for the 
new and old cabinets to be held Satur- 
day, May 6, at Mount Gretna. 

There were no elections held this 
year for any Y. M. C. A. offices, be- 
cause of the uncertainty of male stu- 
dents on campus. However, it is to be 
assumed that the Y. W. will proceed 
to take charge of all activities for- 
merly governed by the two bodies 
jointly, at least until further plans 
are approved by the administration. 

Ballet Concludes 
Series of Concerts 

The final concert of the Community 
Concert Series was held Apr. 27 when 
Mia Slavenska and her dance ensem- 
ble were presented. 

The ensemble consisted of seven 
dancers with Mia Slavenska, the lead- 
ing prima ballerina of the Ballet Rus- 
se de Monte Carlo. This was their 
first American trans-continental tour. 

Mia Slavenska was born in Yugo- 
slavia and studied at the Royal Acad- 
emy of Music in Zogreb. A€ the age 
of fifteen she gave a gala performance 
at the Opera House there in a pro- 
gram entirely arranged and choreo- 
graphed by her. Later she went to 
Paris to pursue her studies With the 
most famous teachers of the Russian 
School of Ballet. 

In 1936 Mia Slavenska's career as 
a concert dancer began to expand 
with tremendous rapidity inside 
France and all over Central Europe 
and North Africa. After these tri- 
umphs she joined the Ballet Russe de 
Monte Carlo in Europe as prima bal- 
lerina and traveled with this company 
all over North and South America 
in stellar roles. 

Mia Slavenska first became known 
to the general public in the United 
States and Canada as star of the mo- 
tion picture, "Ballerina." Now at the 
height of her artistic powers, she is re- 
turning to the field in which she can 
display during one evening all the 
fazes of her great art.

Day festivites, which were presented 
in the form of a May Day breakfast 
this year. Seven o'clock in the morn- 
ing in the dining hall was the scene 
of the activities where the queen, her 
majesty, Hazel Fornoff, and her court 
presided over a meal of ham and eggs. 
Before the meal, the queen was crown- 
ed by Elizabeth Ann Hess. 

The newly crowned ruler, her court, 
and her followers then retired to the 
campus where they were spectators of 
the traditional May Pole Dance. This 
year the dance was presented by the 
Sophomores instead of the Juniors, as 
has been the custom heretofore. The 
gay blue and white streamers, the 
colorful spring attire of the dancers 
and the whole assembled company 
blended perfectly in the early morn- 
ing sunshine. 

The court who smiled with pleasure 
on the festivities consisted of Gene 
Bowman, Marion Kreider, Anna Ad- 
ams, Emma Catherine Miller, Blos- 
som Levitz and Sara McGeehin. The 
Sophomore girls who danced before 
the queen were: Joanne Bittner, 
Claire Schaeffer, Edna Mae Hollinger, 
Christine Mumma, Erma Loy, Phyllis 
Snyder, Catherine Yeager, Elizabeth 
Bowman, Madeline Meily, Violo Shet- 
tel, Gilda Tulli, Ruth Karre, Eleanor 
Frezeman, Jean Thrush, Nancy Satta- 
zahn, Helen Hartz, Mary Jane Wie- 
land, and Frances Workman.

Radio Operator Killed In 
Crash of Plane in Africa 

The name of Sgt. William Reed, '42, 
is the fifth to be added to Lebanon 
Valley's fatal casualty list since the 
start of the war. 

"Bill" was killed in a plane crash 
in Africa, Saturday, April 22. As far 
as can be learned, he was on routine 
duty as a radio operator with the Uni- 
ted States Army Air Corps. His par- 
ents, Mr. and Mrs. William Reed, of 
Pine Grove, were notified of their 
son's death on Sunday, April 23. 

Originally bent on becoming a mu- 
sician, Bill changed his mind after 
arriving on the campus, and took a 
degree as a history major. He did not, 
however, lose his interest in music. 
During his four years at L. V. C, he 
was active in the Symphony Orches- 
tra, Chorus, and the College Orches- 

The athletic teams at Lebanon Val- 
ley saw much of Sgt. Reed during his 
student days. He served and staunch- 
ly supported them as their manager, 
and was himself an athlete in intra- 
mural circles. Bill's extra-curricular 
activities were also extended to in- 
clude May Day events, the Y. M. C. 
A. Cabinet, and the Quittapahilla. 

Dean's Nephew Killed 

In Airplane Crash 

Major Perry J. Richie, nephew of 
Mrs. A. H. M. Stonecipher, was killed 
in a plane crash last week, April 24. 
When the plane crashed, Major Richie 
was making a trip to California as a 
test pilot. Mrs. Stonecipher and her 
daughter, Virginia, '44, visited the 
family last week in Dayton, Ohio. 


New Year Book

Latest reports from a feverish Quit- 
tie office indicates that all material

Therefore, the Quittie staff has high 
hopes that this year's Quittapahilla 
will be ready for distribution by May 
19, or at the latest, during the follow-

'Looking Backward 

One of the many gifts that an old LA VIE staff presents to the new one 
is the talent to see into the future and predict the year that is to come. And 
as we exercise that gift there are many things that we can see. We can see 
a campus life even more radically changed than that of this year, we can see 
our own doubts and uncertainties as to the rightness of our being here, and 
we can see the fear that will live with us for our loved ones who are out in 
the fight. 

But as we focus a little more clearly on the future there are other things 
existing side by side with change and doubt and fear. There is the strength 
that comes from understanding what the fight is about, the courage that 
springs from a knowledge that here we are preparing for a better self and 
nation and world, and the quiet hope, that, as surely as the Chinese students 
carried their universities to safety, so we may carry Lebanon Valley from 
the present, over dangerous ground, safely into the future, whole and un- 
harmed, please God. 

'Looking Forward 

It doesn't seem possible that the time has come for us to say goodby to 
the Senior members of this staff. Perhaps we are reluctant to do so because 
we know we have a big job to do in accepting the responsibilities that they 
have so ably carried this year. They have done a grand job — as some of us 
know who have worked long hours with them trying to meet the deadlines — 
and we appreciate it. 

Next year as we scurry around LA VIE hunting material for the third 
page at 9:55 P. M., we shall think of you and, as we shall be doing many oth- 
er times, wish you were back to help us. 

However, we do know it is up to us now — and we hereby give our prom- 
ise to you and to all those who are leaving the campus that we are not going 
to fall down on the work that you have started. 

LA VIE will go on — as always — hitting for newer and higher standards 
each year! 


Grad Reports 
on Shakespeare 

Miss Ida Katharine Hall, of Lan- 
caster, Pa., just returned from Eng- 
land where she served as an American 
Red Cross camp director, has some in- 
teresting news of Shakespeare for us. 

Miss Hall served at the American 
Red Cross White Swan Club, which 
was the one time center of activity in 
Shakespeare's day in his native Strat- 

The White Swan Red Cross Club 
has become one of the most popular in 
England for the American service- 
men. "Some come because they are 
curious, some because they secretly 
want to know more about Shake- 
speare's life and times. Others are 
earnest scholars and devotees," says 
Miss Hall. 

Tours of all Stratford-on-Avon are 
arranged for visiting Yanks who wish 
them. The boys visit Shakespeare's 
birthplace as well as remains of the 
house where he wrote "The Tempest," 
his last play; the Shakespearian The- 
atre, Ann Hathway's cottage and Col- 
legiate Church of Holy Trinity, where 
Shakespeare is buried. 

Every Yank was permitted to bring 
one friend in the Allied Forces as his 
guest to the club square dances. Fre- 
quent dances were staged for the men. 

"In England," says Miss Hall, "the 
American Red Cross camp clubs and 
the leave area clubs are the answer 
to every welfare problem of the Am- 
erican G. I. Every American Red 
Cross worker considers it the highest 
tribute when a Yankee says, 'Gee, this 
is just like our country club back 
home. " 

Miss Hall went overseas with the 
American Red Cross last June. A 
graduate of Lebanon Valley College, 
she was associated with the advertis- 
ing department of the Armstrong- 
Cork Company in Lancaster before 
joining the Red Cross. Earlier she 
taught social studies and was super- 
visor of Music in the schools of East 
Berlin, Pa. 

Just Plain Gossip 

Don't be alarmed folks, we just couldn't think of any fancy names for 
this column, so. we decided to break down and give you the facts straight 
off. If you don't like our lack of appeal to your aesthetic senses, we would 
thank you for any suggestions. 

And before we forget it, we want to send a plea to all who will be on 
campus in the fall — we don't care what you do that's different, but please 
do something. We want some good juicy material for this column — and 
we mean juicy. 


Lots of people were there, too — except Klick. The details of her eve- 
ning are being withheld, even from your reporter. 

Hoerner insisted upon a snapshot to bolster his wavering courage before 
he said "Yes." Maybe he doesn't trust the friends of Shupper's friends, huh ? 

Did anybody else think they were crazy when they saw Creamie leaving 
N. Hall in a blue evening gown, appear at the dance garbed in a black one, 
and return in the blue one ? Spaghetti can be maddening, can't it ? 

Kathryn Albert got involved in quite a few complications, too. Oh, 
well, the ride was fun, she says. 

By the way, did anyone notice how many people disappeared during the 
course of the evening, especially the Grand March? (If this shoe fits' you, 
wear it!). 

Nimmy claims the record Sor being the only person actually reaching 
the top of the Tower; not that this has anything to do with the lack of 
people in the Grand March or anything. 

There are some new couples in evidence, for instance, Madalyn and 
George, and Evelyn and Richard, or isn't that news, or isn't it? 

Gerry Huss was in a daze too, and here are our own personal orchids 
to her for doing a big job well. 

And did you hear about Haverstock? Returning from a big week-end, 
she fell asleep on the bus and didn't wake up till Lebanon. 

Gene had a wonderful week-end, too, and Jeanne Kitchen finally has 
that diamond that we've all been waiting for. 

Here's wishing you an exciting summer holiday, and do please tell us 
all about it when you return; we have to print something, don't we? 

• Gome to the Carnival 

"So pack up your troubles and leave every care — 
Heigh-ho, come to the Carnival." 

You will soon be hearing catch phrases such as this swinging through 
the air to lure you to the grand and glorious event of the year — the Carni- 
val, sponsored by the Senior Conservatory Students. For weeks the girls have 
been scurrying about in search of added amusements for your pleasure, since 
they want you to have one great fling before the fearful days of doom begin. 

We can assure you that Bunny Roye well deserves all the credit to be 
given her, and we hope that you won't forget to tell her and her committee 
what a "swell" time you have had. This is your chance to really let down* 
your hair and join in with the gang for a night of fun and frolic on the cam- 
pus green. 

In case you have forgotten, the theme of the evening will be Pennies. No, 
they are not giving them away — that's where you come in. It will be just like 
the penny fairs you attended back in the good old days before anyone told you 
there were such things as final exams. 

There will be music and dancing and Bingo — and, well — anything else 
you can think of that means Fun. (That is, almost anything else.) 

"So pack up your troubles and leave every care — 
Heigh-ho, come to the Carnival."

"The Lord is in His Holy temple, let 
all the earth keep silence before Him." 

This year the LA VIE COLLEGI- 
ENNE has been sponsoring this col- 
umn under the heading of Our Week- 
ly Meditation. It is, therefore, only a 
suggestion that we make to you in our 
last issue for the school term that we 
all do a little serious meditating. We 
think ourselves so busy with the af- 
fairs of the campus that we do {not 
wish to take some few minutes now 
and then for an honest consultation 
with ourselves. 

In the spring especially we are 
urged inwardly to worship God in a 
quiet way, humbly and sincerely, as 
we view the beauties of a world com- 
ing to a new life. Perhaps we have 
felt His presence as we walked to the 
Quarry on a Sunday afternoon, or as 
we stood on the bridge out at Krei- 
der's. And it is also very likely that 
we shrugged our shoulders in our so- 
phisicated way as if to put away the 
realization that God is omnipresent 
and that thanks should be given unto

In View Of Exams 

The exam schedule was posted on 
the bulletin board a few weeks ago, 
and for a time it was the center ojf 
much study and speculation. Students 
hurried and scurried about in front 
of the board, buzzing their hopes 
about changing a date here and there. 

But then, after the first fervor, thi 
numbers grouped before the bulletin 
board declined, as each went home to 
ponder his own secret sorrow. All 
minds deliberately thought of the gay- 
ety that was to come — the prom and 

May Day and supper hikes and .

2 Leading Mid -West Educators 
Praise Waves' Training Program 


WAVES on the march at Hunter College, New York 

The Navy's WAVES are not only doing vital win-the-war work but 
the experience they gain is an important complement to their education- 
assert two of the Mid- West's leading educators — Dr. W. C. Coffey, 
president of the University of Minnesota, and Dr. John C, West, presi- 
dent of the University of North Dakota. 

"If I had a daughter of my own 
and if she were properly qualified, 
I would be gratified if she should 
decide to join 
the WAVES," 
says Dr. Coffey. 
"It seems to me 
wise to take 
women into the 
armed forces for 
required serv- 
ices that they 
can handle quite 
as well or even 
better than can 

"Such a prot 
cedure is far 
better than taking men out of posi- 
tions in defense industries and 
other civilian positions important in 
connection with the war and which 
are more or less difficult for women. 
After all, this is a total war, calling 
for the placement of each and every 
individual where he or she can con- 
tribute to greatest advantage. I 
found that the war training pro- 
grams that have been established 

Dr. W. C. Coffey 

for women offer a real opportunity

'A Vital ServiceP 

Commenting on the WAVE fe- 
cruiting program, Dr. West de- 
clares: "We are proud that so 
many women graduates of the Uni- 
versity of North Dakota are serv- 
ing their country in the uniform of 
the WAVES. We recognize that 
the training they receive is an im- 
portant complement to their formal 
education, and that the work which 
they do is a vital service to their 
country in a time when such serv- 
ice is urgently needed. I heartily 
endorse this branch of service in 
the Navy, and I would be happy to 
lend my i support to any program 
to recruit new members to carry 
on its great work." 

The Navy Department has Just 
issued a new booklet on the 
WAVES, free copies of which are 
available to young women at Navy 
Recruiting Stations or offices of 
Naval Officer Procurement 

Rattlers Are 
Victors In 
Axe League 

The Rattlers fought their way to 
victory in the photo-finish race for 
Axe League supremacy in a thrilling 
game on Wednesday, April 26. The 
Bears put up a stiff battle throughout 
the basketball championship game. At 
half time the Bears were ahead by 
one point, but the Rattlers came back 
to a 46-40 victory. "Hank" Detweiler 
topped the scoring list for the Rat- 
tlers with 29 points. Captain Ted 
Lenker who was about to leave for 
the Navy scored 14 points. Bashore 
and Schnee chalked up for the Bears, 
20 and 13 points each. 

The championship game also saw 
Detweiler clinch the individual scor- 
ing title with a total of 209 points for 
the season. Bashore was a close sec- 
ond with 206 points. 

The final team standings are: Rat- 
tlers, won 8, lost 3 ; Bears, won 7, lost 
4; Wildcats, won 1, lost 9. Thanks to 
the efforts of "Mike" Intrieri and the 
Men's Day Student Council, the intra- 
mural basketball season was a very 
successful one. 

Spring Sports in 

Have you seen some action lately in 
the direction of the tennis courts? 
Spring is in the air, and the male ele- 
men of LV is spending some time get- 
ting the courts in shape. The writer 
has hopes which extend in two direc- 
tions. First, here's hoping that the 
energetic start exhibited in the prep- 
aration of the courts will continue un- 
til the job is done. Secondly, now is 
the time for all tennis fans, new and 
old, good and bad, to send for that 
tennis racket, and have it ready for 
the time when the fellows finish. If 
you've never played, see some of the 
people who know the game. If you're 
good, practice a lot, so that you'll get 
)etter. Anyway, the action so far looks 
good, keep up the spirit and let's have 
some good times this year. 

Do you like to walk on the campus? 
Here's how to do it without arousing 
the ire of the governing bodies or the 
administration. Wend your way to 
the archery range and try for the 
bull's eye. There has been quite a bit 
of action on the range lately, and it 
looks good. Keep it up, archers, and 
tiy to enlist others.

Sponsellor. He emphasized the place 
of the college and university newspa- 
per in providing school spirit, in co- 
ordinating college functions, and in 
presenting unbiased news-pictures of 
campus life. Dr. George G. Struble, 
one of the faculty advisers of the 
staff, also made a few remarks in 
which he complemented the retiring 
officers and welcomed new editors to 
their positions. 

The meeting was adjourned after 
the announcement of the names of

boys a break 

You do someone a real favor when you stay 
off Long Distance lines from 7 to 10 at night. 
When a lot of people do that, a lot of service 
men's calls get through guicker. 

The soldiers and sailors — their folks back 
home — and the telephone company are all 
grateful for your help. 

So tonight and every night, "give seven to 
ton to the service men." That's about the best 
time they have to call.
